My husband and I took our 3 children (10,7,5) to these lovely pods in October.the pods themselves are really just a shed with a bed and defiantly not for a family of 5 or even 4! We had to but the provided beds (which were comfy) in a L shape then the 3 children in a line on the floor with their feet under the bed! Good job the door opened outwards as we would have had to move a bed to get out! We had pod number 1 which was lovely by the lake and we could have our car next to us which was a must as we had no other space in the pod but it didn't have gravel In front of it so as it had been raining the whole time it was very muddy we had to take our shoes of on the little step then put the muddy shoes in the pod under the bed as there was no other covered space.
The large lodge is a great idea but the kitchen was to small for the 21 pods and the weekend we were there it was pretty much taken over by a large group/family who used up all the fridge and cupboard space and made the large room a compleat tip with kids games all over the floor and their wet cloths and coats hanging off every radiater they even left their own toiletries in the bathrooms which made us feel as if we weren't surposed to be in there.so I just ran in made a brew and went back to the pod.
A second toilet block is very much needed if this new business is a success.
Wish you luck Alex as it's a great idea but there is a lot of work to be done to get people to come back.
Oh and we had a lovely breakfast at the fishing lake and cafe that's about 4 mins away in the car.
